Review: Pepsi Throwback

Last night I finally got to try Pepsi Throwback.

It’s Pepsi made with NATURAL SUGAR instead of high-fructose corn syrup.

(For an epically scientific review, go here.)

It’s basically the most delicious thing I’ve ever drank.

I’m a lifelong Pepsi fan. It’s what my dad drinks. It’s what I drink. It makes everything taste better. Pizza, pasta, guacamole, whatever. All of these things are more enjoyable when washed down with a nice, cold Pepsi.

Throwback is the purest tasting Pepsi I’ve ever had. It doesn’t have that syrupy aftertaste that sticks to your tongue and teeth.

It tastes like Pepsi with a kick. The flavor is more pleasing and pronounced.

And it’s only available for eight weeks.

So please, please, please listen up closely, Pepsi. Don’t turn the best beverage you’ve ever made into just another gimmick. Let it be a product. I don’t want to go back to the syrupy stuff after having had this.

The ball’s in your court. Are you a provider of delicious drinks, or do you only care about gimmicks and publicity?

Please make this stuff permanent.

That is all.

For now.

(They’ve also got Mountain Dew Throwback, which I’ll try tonight and review tomorrow.)

    Whoever came up with the name “Throwback” should be fired. But I agree, the drink is better than the normal stuff. Even slightly less sugar would be good. I rarely drink soda because it is so cloying, but Throw…erm…back was something I could almost drink on a regular basis.
